On-going consultations stall implementation of ZESCO’s planned 10% hike in electricity tariffs


ZESCO will not implement its 10 percent tariff increment which was approved by the Energy Regulation Board (ERB) until exhaustive consultations with stakeholders are concluded.

ERB in April had approved a 10 percent upward adjustment in electricity tariffs.

The new tariffs were scheduled to be effected on May 1, this year.

According to a report by the Times of Zambia, ZESCO Spokesperson, Katongo Maumbi, said the power utility firm was currently engaged in consultations regarding the implementation of the tariffs.

In-house consultations, and with other relevant authorities, are reportedly still in the process, Maumbi said.

“Only when the final approval was made would ZESCO proceed with a mutually agreed position,” he said.
